Devotional For March 3, 2024

For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
‭‭I Peter‬ ‭2‬:‭25‬

The apostle Peter writes to believers, encouraging them to live holy lives and endure suffering patiently, following the example of Christ. In verse 25, Peter uses the imagery of sheep and a shepherd to illustrate the spiritual reality of believers returning to Christ, who is the ultimate Shepherd and Guardian of their souls.

We often find ourselves wandering away from God’s path, entangled by the cares of this world or overcome by our own desires. Yet, just as a shepherd diligently seeks out his lost sheep, Christ pursues us, calling us back into His loving embrace. We are no longer aimless wanderers but cherished members of His flock, under His watchful care.

When you feel lost or overwhelmed, turn to Jesus, trusting in His unfailing love and guidance. Allow His presence to bring you comfort, peace, and assurance, knowing that He will never leave you.

Pray

Lord, thank You for being my Shepherd and Overseer. When start to stray, lead me back into Your loving arms. Help me to trust in Your provision and guidance, knowing that You care for me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
